Writer's Block: Connecting the dots  
How do you feel about standardized tests? Do you think they accurately indicate a student's knowledge or ability?

Standardized tests measure students' ability to do well on standardized tests. That's pretty much it.

*snerks* Too true. Of course I've always lamented the fact there are no actual jobs where "does well on standardized tests" is a qualification, because I always used to blow them away when I was in school.

Pretty much. I can see doing some limited standardized testing, but they get crazy.

I love it when you say sensible things like this!
